Michael S. “Mike” Borgfield, 43, of Jackson, was admitted to Southeast Hospital on Tuesday, July 26, 2016.  Later that evening, surrounded by his loving family, he died of unknown natural causes.

He was born July 2, 1973, in Cape Girardeau, to Danny J. and Linda M. Brotherton Borgfield.  He and Sandy Motley had been happily sharing life together since 2003.

Mike was a 1991 graduate of Jackson High School.  He had been employed 21 years with Rubbermaid in Jackson and friends there affectionately know him as “Shakey”.  Mike was a member of Emanuel United Church of Christ in Jackson.

In his spare time, Mike was a shade-tree mechanic.  He enjoyed remote control cars, monster trucks, WWE wrestling, and especially loved animals.

Loving survivors include a daughter, Amanda (Raymond) Dunn of Patton; his parents, Danny J. Borgfield and Linda M. (Kevin) Crader of Jackson; his fiance, Sandy Motley and her children, Charlie (Amanda), Justin, and Kaylynn Motley of Jackson; a sister, Nikki Crader-Hodges, her husband Steven and their children, Colton, Kayla, and Kassie of Jackson; grandmothers, Betty (the late Carson) Burns and Nelda (the late Jack) Crader of Jackson; and a stepson, Steven Huff of Rolla; and several aunts and uncles.  Michael was anticipating the birth of his first grandchild in February.

He was preceded in death by grandparents, Floyd Eugene Brotherton and Ervin and Hester Borgfield.

Visitation will be Sunday, July 31, 2016, from 1 to 3 p.m., at McCombs Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Jackson, Missouri.

Graveside service will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates memorials to the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri or Emanuel United Church of Christ in Jackson.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, and send my condolences. This is one of the hardest times in a family’s life, always know that others care. Most important God cares. He has promised a time when he will “swallow up death forever and he will wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Praying for your family, and praying you will find comfort in this promise.
